Top Fantasy Golf Picks for the Masters

Rory McIlroy – It’s the only golf major he hasn’t won yet and he keeps knocking at the door of the closet looking for a green jacket. He is on a streak of five straight Top 10 finishes at the Masters and he is playing really well in 2019. He is a solid (albeit) pricy DFS fantasy golf pick that will get you a load of points…now it’s just a matter of if he’ll win.

Dustin Johnson – The number one golfer in the world has had a top 10 finish in his last three appearances at Augusta and is a fantasy golf monster in almost every tournament he enters. Just remember we mention this in our US Masters Betting Tip page – Since Tiger Woods won in 2002, no golfer that is ranked number 1 in the world has won the Masters.

Tiger Woods – Is the old Tiger Woods back? He’s not dominating tournaments like in his heyday and is more now just a good golfer on the PGA Tour but for a guy that gears himself up for the majors and has in the past owned Augusta…Tiger Woods may have earned himself finally to be labelled as a favorite to win the 2019 Masters.

Justin Rose – He’s finished 2nd twice in the last four years and hasn’t finished worse than 25th in the last eight years. I have used Rose in my DFS lineups every year since 2015 when if he had won instead of coming in 2nd to Jordan Spieth I would have cashed in the $1 Million check from DraftKings instead of settling for a Top 50 finish. Nevertheless, Justin Rose is a solid fantasy pick for the Masters and is a threat to win each time he plays.

Jason Day – Day has been playing really well in 2019 and has a solid history at Augusta. He can be an injury risk to W/D out of a tournament when his back issues kick up but as a fantasy golf pick when healthy he is always a threat to win a tournament and winning a green jacket at the Masters is a drive for him.
